Angeles is a meeting planner's dream when plans include a reception,
theme party or event at an off-site location. Creative possibilities
abound in the City of Angels given the diversity of its business and
cultural community, the entertainment industry and architectural

and private entertainment industry facilities, theatre lobbies,
historic landmarks, exclusive clubs and restaurants, ranches, yachts,
and much more provide the creative alternatives you want to impress
Visualize a reception at a magnificent mansion at
the top of Beverly Hills with a breathtaking city, ocean and mountain
view, and furnished with antiques from around the globe. Or dining and
dancing at a 17,000 square foot Italian Renaissance Villa featured in
many art and architectural tours and used as a showcase for continuing
art exhibitions. Perhaps you would prefer a $30 million private ranch
in Malibu complete with emus and llamas, breathtaking scenery,
spectacularly landscaped grounds and a full-size tennis court for
dining under the stars.
Our city's film studios provide many
options to accommodate different budgets for that requisite "Hollywood
bash": soundstages, production lot theme locations, amphitheaters, even
private studio restaurants that cater to stars and studio executives by
day and cater to your guests at night in exclusive Hollywood style.
entertainment industry complexes with luxurious lobbies and outdoor
plazas have adjacent film and video theatres should you desire a
special "screening" and reception for your guests. Our city's landmark
theatres and performing arts centers are breathtaking architectural
gems and often exemplify the beauty and opulence of the Art Deco style.
Their lobbies provide excellent ambience for entertaining.
else but in Los Angeles could you entertain at a sophisticated western
heritage museum or on John Wayne's private yacht? Have Mrs. John Wayne
host your event? Have the internationally known star of the film "The
Man with Bogart's Face" emcee your event? Have the star of the
television movie "Marilyn and Me" sing to your CEO and delight your
guests? Or have "Cher" give a stuning performance and choose her
"Sonny" for spicy repartee and a few bars of "I Got You, Babe"?
a large group to accommodate? How about a magnificent architectural
landmark entertainment complex highlighted by a majestic 10,000
square-foot glass skylight and terraced wings and a grand atrium
covered by a soaring 90-foot canopy of glass. Los Angeles' landmark
train station suggests an early California mission. It's romantic and
elegant, spacious and beautiful and its expansive main concourse can
accommodate up to 900 guests. Or have our talented event professionals
transform an airplane hangar into a fabulous party site for thousands.
elegant group? Perhaps you would choose an exclusive Sunset Boulevard
club displaying photos of the great stars by legendary photographer
George Hurrell and dine on the terrace with a spectacular city view. Or
choose one of Los Angeles' legendary restaurants - a Hollywood
institution known for its warm and elegant ambiance and known also for
the celebrities, sports personalities, big business CEOs and political
luminaries who are its regulars (including Ronald Reagan). Another

Along with cultural and commercial environments, we
have a world-class unversity that offers such distinctive options as a
world-famous basketball arena and an internationally renowned concert
hall in Spanish Italian architecture with elegant lobbies and terraces
overlooking the hills of Bel Air.
Several sites offer video
theatres, breakout and reception areas for regular meetings in an
alternative setting. There is also a private conference center on the
fashionable Westside with magnificent Northern Italian interiors and
Many venues require the services of an
independent catering company; others provide in-house catering only.
Generally speaking, when the venue generates profit from in-house food
and beverage, location fees are lower and rental equipment (tables,
chairs, linen, china, etc.) is included, making the event less costly
for the more conservative budget. The unique appeal and desirability of
a particular location site for your company's event, however, will
often justify a higher expenditure.
In conclusion, Los Angeles'
unique and exciting selection of special event venues is unequaled and
our company is here to help you choose the one that's perfect for you
and to package your event to perfection.
